Pros

Company is in a stable and recession proof economic sector. Some of the pros are loyalty to staff, supportive and considerate teams, good work life balance, flat management structure. Intra company moves is encouraged. Job off shoring and outsourcing is discouraged.

Cons

Because of the largely flat management structure, advancement within teams are almost nill. You need to switch job to progress. I guess this is similar to what you'll find in similar sized companies. There is also an element of bureaucracy that you'll find in similar sized companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce some of the bureaucracy and make innovation processes work.
